We are crowd, we are anonymous

WARNING
This post is full of emotions, strong words, my own opinions. It is far from being politically correct in any dimension. If you know me, you know what I mean. You read this post on your own responsibility.
I struggled since Friday two weeks ago to actually get it in shape and post it. I have compressed a year long of frustrations and anger.
Enjoy!

Friday, finally. When I was leaving office I was filled with anger, disappointment and this weird feeling of lost hope and faith in humanity. I am coder, by heart, and by accident I work with people.

On the way back home I was thinking about this post as a way for me to deal with all my frustration, being mainly driven by my interactions with other people. As I was passing tram stops I finally realized that there is something different which is a reason of my bad mood and what a surprise, the reason is different then I thought.

In mind of 4Developers’2015

So, end of call for papers for 4Developers’2015 is approaching fast, it is actually end of January. I will be honest with you, I don’t have a clue what I will be talking about at “the only”, “the biggest” software architecture track in Poland, this year :). Yeah, I little bit of megalomania is never enough.
But actually it is true, in 2014 we had two full rooms of people, in parallel, listening to real world cases studies from battlefields.
Why I am writing this post at my almost dead blog? Simply, because a single tweet is not enough to tell you about my plans for this year. My dream is that every year, software architecture track at 4Developers will have different leitmotif. I also hope it will help you to find a topic you can talk about.

The word for this year is:

FAILURE

Failure in many different shapes. Tell us how and why you failed implementing newest, coolest architecture paradigm, how you design your systems, so they can fail in a controlled way. Tell us how you design for failure and how you fail fast.

Of course if you want to talk about something else, that’s cool, but I will prefer talks about failures, in any technology and framework, over other talks. So don’t wait to fail, submit your talk to 4Developers at CfP page, or write to me directly. In case you are not convinced you are a right person to stand in front of crowd to talk about failures, believe you are.
